Station Policies


We subscribe to standards of editorial independence adopted by the Institute for Nonprofit News.

KPCW retains full authority over editorial content to protect the best journalistic and business interests of our organization. We maintain a firewall between news coverage decisions and sources of all revenue. Acceptance of financial support does not constitute implied or actual endorsement of donors or their products, services or opinions.

We accept gifts, grants and sponsorships from individuals and organizations for the general support of our activities, but our news judgments are made independently and not on the basis of donor support.

KPCW may consider donations to support the coverage of particular topics, but our organization maintains editorial control of the coverage. We will cede no right of review or influence of editorial content, nor of unauthorized distribution of editorial content.

KPCW's news department also abides by the follow ethics policies:

Society of Profesional Journalists Code of Ethics

RTDNA Code of Ethics


We are committed to transparency in every aspect of funding our organization.

Accepting financial support does not mean we endorse donors or their products, services or opinions. We do not give supporters the rights to assign, review or edit content.

We will make public all donors who give more than $5,000 per year. As a nonprofit, we will only accept donations from anonymous sources of $5,000 or less and if it is clearly understood that sufficient safeguards have been put into place that the expenditure of that donation is made independently by our organization. We also disclose all donations from government entities, elected officials or candidates actively seeking public office. We will not accept donations from sources who, deemed by our board of directors, present a conflict of interest with our work or compromise our independence.


KPCW is the only not-for-profit source of free, independent, daily local news for residents and visitors in Utah’s Summit and Wasatch counties. Keeping our community connected and informed is at the heart of what KPCW does every day. KPCW strives to be an anchor in the community that listens deeply, surfaces untold stories, presents fact-based information that builds awareness, empathy, and engagement among the diverse communities we serve. KPCW conducts in-depth local news and interviews with city and county leaders, public health officials, local school boards, and nonprofits serving the community, and the station provides up-to-the minute information affecting our listeners such as severe weather, power outages, road conditions, and regional emergencies like wildfires and backcountry avalanches.

With inclusivity in mind, KCPW posts stories in both English and Spanish and has a dedicated Spanish webpage ensuing everyone who lives and works in Summit and Wasatch Counties is informed. KPCW also delivers locally produced public affairs shows focused on business, arts and culture, the environment, physical and mental health, advances in science and technology, and music and entertainment programming. All of our news stories and our locally produced public affairs shows are posted to our website and mobile app without a paywall. This means that KPCW content is accessible to anyone, anywhere, anytime, making it easy for Summit and Wasatch residents – and anyone around the world – to access KPCW content for free.


KPCW is committed to having a staff, board of trustees and community advisory board that reflects the diversity of our community. Managers are encouraged to interview a well-qualified and diverse candidate pool for all open positions. 

KPCW is committed to providing an equal employment opportunity for all persons. KPCW is also committed to the principle of nondiscrimination in all employment-related practices and decisions, including, but not limited to, recruitment, hiring, supervision, promotion, compensation, benefits, termination and all other practices and decisions affecting an employee or potential employee. Management at KPCW and Board members exercising employee management responsibilities are required to take vigorous and appropriate action to assure that all employment-related practices and decisions are made without discrimination, harassment, or prejudicial treatment because of race, ethnicity, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, age, disability or protected veterans’ status. 

KPCW’s annual diversity goals are:

  • To recruit and retain a diverse workforce that is representative of our service area.
  • To provide equal opportunity in employment
  • To educate our management, staff and board annually in best practices for maintaining an inclusive and diverse environment for all persons
  • To seek candidates for KPCW’s Community Advisory Board that represent the geographically and demographically diverse composition of the many communities we serve. 
  • To assist in developing a more diverse future workforce with professional skills in the broadcasting/media industry by recruiting diverse candidates for KPCW’s internship opportunities and/or by participating in minority or other diversity job fairs.
